Miguna Miguna pours cold water on Steve Mbogo’s combat look

Lawyer Miguna Miguna has poured cold water on the stealthy appearance spotted by flamboyant city politician Steve Mbogo at 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi on Tuesday.

According to Miguna, no civilian is allowed to own automatic weapons let alone don bullet proof vests in public.

“No civilian is legally permitted to own automatic weapons, nor are they legally allowed to roam around the City with them. Civilians cannot don bullet-proof vests in public. Lastly, being a licensed gun owner does not make one a police officer…..,” wrote Miguna.

But according to the 2017 Starehe parliamentary aspirant, he was at the scene as a civilian who was in a capacity to help.

He told eDaily that he was running errands near DusitD2 when reports emerged that it was under attack reiterating that he ‘has good knowledge of firearms.

“I am a licensed firearms holder. I was running my errands near the dusitD2 Hotel here in Nairobi, when I learnt that the facility was under a terror attack. Because I was in a position to help, given I have good knowledge on how to handle firearms and protect myself against such situations, I went in to help in the rescue operations. If you are asking in what capacity I was there, I would tell you: I was there as a civilian, who is mandated by law to handle firearms,” Mbogo told eDaily.

Rescue efforts at the complex are still ongoing.

    They arrested him according to close sources. Its true you cannot be licensed to own an automatic gun.
    One is only allowed a maximum of 10 bullets at a given time just for protection. The highest you can get is .45 automatic and that too need special licence and it is given to police reservist.
    On that note the prophets that predict terrorist attacks and it happens should be arrested for questioning for they may have prior knowledge before it happens. Teresa sermon on Sunday raises question and as a formaility she should be arrested.
